    Stay on the valley road until the traffic light crossroads in the middle of Ilkley. Turn left up the main street. At the top turn left and immediately right and carry on straight up until the cattle grid.

    Coming from Otley head straight into the centre of Ilkley and turn left at the X-roads by the Crescent hotel. Up to the end then lefta nd immediately right continuing up the hill. Over the cattle grid and the car park (if you are early enough) is on the right.

    Essentially it is just below White Wells. Taking a load of juniors from Otley AC hopefully. Don't know about the map but the route is unmarked so it might be a good idea to have one, or do a recce. I might do one this Sunday if anyone is interested?

    Done this last 3years - you're given a photocopied map and asked to carry it. It's a cracking race!

    Egor - thats the correct place. Pub on the right is now called the Dalesway, Crescent Hotel on the left.

    Re: jack bloor fell race

    One of my favourite races. I like the fact that options are encouraged between the checkpoints though the fires of a couple of years ago have eased certain parts of the course.

    Unfortunately not able to run it (or anything else for that matter) at the moment.
